anniversary of a number of civil rights flashpoints. 1963 was a pretty important year in the civil rights movement or would i will call the black freedom struggle for the rest of the talk and none will be more celebrated than the march on washington that happened on august 28, 1963. i think we can imagine that the focus will be -- this is probably what we are going to see a lot of. dr. king, the celebrity of dr. king and the i have a dream speech. maybe there will be some mentioning of the complex of the march on washington, the labor unions and the practice and made it possible and did all of the organizing. maybe we will hear about the full name of the march on washington which was the march on washington for jobs and freedom, and maybe we will even hear about the kennedy administration horror about this march. they didn't want this to happen. a were concerned there would lead to the point president kennedy's shut down the federal government other than for the essential personnel the day that this occurred in 63. but, i am pretty certain that the commemoration is mostly going to focus o

people of all colors. in 1968 dr. king told advocates the time had come to transition from a civil rights movement to a human-rights movement. meaningfully quality could not be achieved through civil rights alone without basic human rights, the right to work, the right to shelter, the right to quality education, without basic human rights, civil rights are an empty promise. in honor of dr. king and all those who labored to end the old jim crow i hope we will commit ourselves to building a human rights movement to end mass incarceration. a movement for education, not incarceration. a movement for jobs, not jail. a movement to end all these forms of legal discrimination against people, discrimination that denies them basic human rights to work, shelter, into food. what must we do to continue this movement? we must begin by telling the truth, the whole truth. we have got to admit out loud that we as a nation have managed to recreate a cast like system in this country. we have got to be willing to tell this truth in our schools, in our churches and places of worship, behind bars and reentry c

america's civil rights leader, who was assassinated trying to fight for civil rights in honor of the israeli leader, yitzhak rabin, who was assassinated trying to fight for peace. it's both a symbolic way of the president saying, i deeply understand the israeli struggle, and i also deeply believe that it's worth sacrifice and hard work to continue to fight for peace. quite a way to end his trip. >> quite a way, indeed. jessica yellin, live this morning, thanks for being with us. ahead on "starting point," the nra turning its sights on a new new york gun control law. is this measure unconstitutional? we're going to get reaction from aurora shooting survivor stephen barton. >>> and a 15-year-old girl is trapped when burglars enter her home. >> hey, bring the bucket over here. >> okay, don't talk. >> bring it over here. >> how she survived in her own words. next. you're watching "starting point."

in the civil rights division and found perez gave misleading public testimony when he said in 2010 that political appointees cannot make the decisions to drop prosecution of the new black panther party members. you can read that whole story in politico this morning. to want get to your calls though on this subject of the changes in the republican party, this plan for more outreach, scheduled changes with the conventions and primary. al sect next from colorado. good morning, alec. caller: yes, good morning. i think that rand paul did really well at cpac, and marco rubio is pretty good as well. i just want to say that people like mccain, they served honorably in the military and stuff like that. however, it is time for a change, a new kind of republican party that can reach out to a lot more people. the demographics of america changed, i guess it's a little bit more moderate now. it used to be a center-right nation, and now it's probably center-left, so we probably do need to move the needle toward the center a little bit. as for rand paul, i really do like the fact that he had that
. which moses did in the bible and dr. king obviously did here in america. to lead the civil rights movement. so i thought it was again, very sincere from president obama, and resonated a lot, i know jewish americans, i would guess with african-americans, also guess more broadly, with most americans, for whom the bible is still their favorite book. >> yesterday's speech when he was speaking to the students yesterday, i mean, personally i thought he hit it out of the park. there was so much applause there, he made so much common sense and i feel like he really struck an emotional tone and tried to connect with the people in the audience. how do you feel about what he said and do you think his words will resonate for some time to come? >> i thought it was an excellent speech. and yes i do think, i hope certainly that his words will resonate for some time to come. this was really a brilliantly constructed visit to israel. obviously he had long and apparently very constructive talks with prime minister netenyahu and with prime minister simon perez. but for the major address, he chose no
engage, a large part of the population wouldn't engage with civil rights. then they said we have to find a way to do this. there's no reason why immigration reform and rand paul says hispanics are natural republicans which they used to say that about black people too. lost of people in america have faith in family and are not republicans. republicans should be natural to immigration reform. many depends on what kind of immigration reform. they could favor immigration reform that brings in large number of people driving down the wage rate who don't become citizens for an awfully long time and stop the hugest big government project i can think of which is building a useless wall between america and mexico. there's nothing conservative actually about the immigration, the nature of the immigration conversation. >> congressman i want you to respond to that. i want to talk about the devil in the details. where we are in the house and counter pose to where we are on guns right after we take a break. u can't go wrong loving i. vo: from the classic lines u can't go wrong loving i. to the elegant

. great to have you here. >> welcome. uma: how do you successful will the civil rights groups will be when they take aim at what governor brewer has done? >> i think they're going to be successful. i think the federal law is what controls here, but i understand where the governor's coming from. her state is the one that suffers the most apparently by people coming here illegally. she needs to stand up. she needs to make a statement. she needs to say, we're not going to tolerate this, even if she will wind up losing in the federal court system. even if the federal judges say, no, no, this is federal issue. this isn't a state issue. there are certain issues, governor, you're in charge of but there are other issues where the president is in charge. uma: why isn't this seen as state issue particularly the time it will affect the citizens of that state? >> there is something called the supremacy clause. this is recalcitrant act by jan brewer. she is saying i will ignore president obama's executive order because i don't think it is federally authorized. yet, the state policy itself is up consist
to draw a parallel basically between the african-american civil rights movement and a rooabin and his efforts. president obama is trying to balance outreach to israel with his push towards trying to restart a stalled peace process between the israelis and palestinians. he's expected to travel into the occupied palestinian territories, into the west bank soon, to visit bethlehem. of course, we all know christians believe this to be the birthplace of jesus christ. visiting the church of the holy nativity, he'll be there with the palestinian authority president, mahmoud abbas, and he'll have to pass through those huge security barriers. there's enormous walls that the israelis have set up around this traditionally christian city. and perhaps get a good look at some of the conditions that the palestinians live in. part of this is probably to try to raise some awareness about the christian palestinian population, very much caught in the middle of this grinding conflict between the israelis and the palestinians. zoraida? >> ivan watson live from amman, jordan, this morning. thank you. >>> c

. religious social service groups, civil rights groups to help the naacp, hispanic groups stepping forward. the hispanic caucus should take a much more forward issue. it needs to be replaced with assertive stand up for millions of american workers who are sweating it out on sweat labor. host: ralph nader, the calls are lining up. there, glad you are out think you're doing great work. even though as a republican i disagree with most of what you say, i think the free market has to increase the minimum wage. i particularly did not like the way the you say that the workers are doing twice the work that they were doing 30 years ago, your statistics, i do not know. just because you are doing twice the work, there is not a reason for that, it does not mean that they are running around more. i am not getting twice when i got paid when i started. i am 100% with the with c l's making too much money not being market-driven, i think that is where the energy should go. the other end will take care of itself, if you can figure out some way, and i hope you do, break down those crazy wages for the c o's.
